Agritechnica 2011: Laverda self-levelling combine

Slopes an issue? Laverda’s AL Quattro Evolution has been specially developed for Italy’s growers of durum (pasta) wheat who often plant their crops on steep mountainsides.

Thanks to self-levelling axles front and rear and a monstrous amount of header lateral tilt, it can handle slopes of up to 40°.

The Italian combine maker was bought out earlier this year by US giant Agco following several years of a joint venture which saw Laverda building harvesters for Massey Ferguson and Fendt.

The plant will continue to churn out Laverda-badged machines for the home market while elsewhere the harvesters will be sold solely in MF and Fendt liveries.
